Here's a great original M1861 Springfield for a reenactor or shooter. This musket is all original with the the exception of a stretched stock, a reproduction hammer, and stretched and relined barrel.
The stock is in good condition. The original portion of the butt stock is solid with no cracks or splits. The replacement forearm is solid,
The lock has a even brown patina with great markings. The reproduction hammer matches the lock well. The action is nice and crisp and the hammer holds solid on both half and full cock.
The barrel was expertly stretched and relined by renowned barrel maker Bob Hoyt. The whole barrel was lightly polished and the proof marks at the breech are still legible while the date is gone. The bore is mint with strong rifling and no rust or pitting. Both front and rear sights are reproductions.
The furniture is all original with the exception of the ramrod which is reproduction
This musket would be a great choice for anyone who wants an original weapon they can actually use. All for less than the price of a defarbed reproduction!
